How sad is the passing of a true gentleman who wasn't driven by money or glory but just a pure love of the game for the sake of the game? A total gent and possibly a last connection to when football wasn't a business but a passion. Rest in peace Bobby, you won't be forgotten.
Friday 31st July
Just a quick spin up town abnd back - tons to do today so need to get in office early.
Thursday 30th July
Quick three miler up town and back then getting off for a regular 8:30 meeting. Everything ticking over nicely. Checked weight and it's no different - am disappointed about that but I am turning myself round. Only one unit of alcohol since Friday which is good, good. Shame that Rich has given me a bottle of scotch but that's going to get left alone at least until we go away in August. Watched Kung Fu Panda with Lucy again last night - love some of the wisdom in it;
- “One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it. ”
- “There are no accidents”
- “The mind is like water, my friend. When it is agitated, it becomes difficult to see. But if you allow it to settle, the answer becomes clear”
- "There’s just news. No Good or Bad"
"He will never fulfill his Destiny, nor you, yours; until you let go of the illusion of control."
- “There’s no secret ingredient. To make something special, you just have to believe it’s Special"
Wednesday 29th July
Early into office again - got a quick run done and then into office an 8:30 meeting.
Tuesday 28th July
Whizzed out on the bike early, got papers, got into office for 8am to work on some Order Processing problems - think we've largely fixed em now which is good. Another nightmare day at work but that's over now. Waited for the rain to end and then went a two mile run - bit wet out but glad I done something!
Monday 27th July
Rattling it down with rain again, British Summer Time (when does that start, exactly?). Anyway four miles on the big slow bike was a reasonable start given the weather. That was it really though - didn't leave office til late then had to sort out a friend's router (AOL is really good isn't it, not).
Sunday 26th July
Have sort of had a good Sunday had a glass of red wine at tea-time but no alcohol besides. Saturday was a totally dry day which is the first time in quite a while.
Weather was rubbish all day really so was pleased in some ways to get 7/8 miles done on bike, 4 of which with little Lucy which was good.
